This release was posted on the qplex website yesterday.
Hockey fans can watch the Saint John Sea Dogs vie for their second straight appearance in the Memorial Cup Final Friday night at the qplex.
The game will be shown on the three large projection screens in a family-friendly environment in the qplex’s Moosehead Breweries Conference Centre.
The Sea Dogs secured their place in the national semifinal with a 4-1 win over the host Shawinigan Cataractes last night. Saint John will meet the winner of tonight’s tiebreaker between the Cataractes and Edmonton Oil Kings tomorrow night at 8 o’clock (ADT).
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Bar and canteen services from George Cousins Catering will be available.
There is no admission fee.
If the Sea Dogs win Friday, they will meet the London Knights in Sunday’s title game, which would also be shown at the qplex at 8 p.m.
“More than 225 people joined us for last year’s exciting victory over Mississauga in the Memorial Cup Final,” said Mayor Murray Driscoll. “We hope to see a big crowd on Friday night and then again on Sunday for the championship.
“Go Sea Dogs go!”
Tonight’s game can be seen on Sportsnet beginning at 8pm.
